An Evening with Brian Herbert & Jan Herbert
We are thrilled to welcome back best-selling Seattle author Brian Herbert to talk about his latest works, Ocean, written with his wife Jan, and The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma. Join us for a very special evening with Brian and Jan!
Both books sound a strong environmental/ecology theme, continuing the tradition both his father, Frank Herbert, and later Brian himself used in the epic Dune series.
In The Little Green Book, a revolution has taken over the government of the United States and all pollution has been banned and reversed. It’s a bright, green new world. But this new world comes at a great cost: The country is ruled by the dictatorship of Chairman Rahma, whose power appears absolute. But cracks are beginning to form, from the corporations whose influence has been shorn, and rebels angered by the authortarian Rahma. New weapons are developed by the old corporate powers, foreign alliances begin to make inroads into America’s influence . . . and strange reports of mutants filter through the government's censorship. Herbert gives readers a haunting look into the gray area between dream and disaster, harmony and imbalance, and utopian image and dystopian reality,
Ocean is an epic ecological fantasy, set in 2024, when the Earth is consumed by a great War of Ocean Liberation. A military force of sea creatures attacks naval installations, shuts down shipping lanes and fishing operations, and destroys offshore oil-drilling rigs. Their goal is the complete liberation of the seas from human control.
